I can’t believe I have been painting en plein air for 41 years . It has been quite an adventurous lifestyle. I have always loved to travel and plein air painting is the perfect companion. I paint and teach all over the world and especially enjoy to explore and experience rural remote places. It is a challenge to take all my paint gear and supplies and moving with wet paintings. One of my highlights in my career as an artist was painting and producing the American public television series “ passport and palette “. Filming and sharing the plein air process in some of the most spectacular locations around the world . One of our first sponsors for our television series was Tom Carney and Aida Porras of Multimedia Artboard. Tom and I brainstormed many times to create quality light weight painting panels to make the plein air experience the best possible. I spent many years painting in rural China and so decided to try watercolor and acrylic to make the transport of paintings easier. Tom developed a lot of new product lines over the years . I really enjoyed the lightweight but ridged boards with arches oil paper and his Fabionna watercolor/ acrylic paper . I have won quite a few awards with my work on these panels and I am so pleased with the quality.
